The view was beautiful enough. Though I think the boats actually ruined the view but apart from that, just magnificent.

We boated out onto the lake seeing one amazing sculptural rock after another and visited a floating group of huts and restaurant. Took a kayak out and swam. Hiked to a cave--all wonderful, naturally beautiful and interesting. Well worth the effort to get here.

We enjoyed three of trips on the lake, once to reach our floating hotel, and then a couple of trips for birdwatching. The lake was empty of people most of the time and a pleasure cruise.

I am sure you can arrange a trip from your hotel. I wouldn’t try and hire a boat for 2 you can get enjoyment from a full long boat which is only about 16/18 people and shouldn’t spoil your enjoyment Enjoy

Ask at your hotel, for me they booked a place in a shared van. I'm sure that you can also book a private car or taxi but it costs around 1200-1400.
